I doubt that I could. I could never get emotionally close to a person who doesn't read books, mainly because we could never discuss a specific book, and the person would never be able to take any of my recommendations let alone make any recommendations of their own to me.
(This is nothing that's happening to me right now, just a random hypothetical that I've been pondering when I can't sleep at night and such. )

Hopefully a reader and non reader can exist in this world and perhaps the reader, being excited about a wonderful book can turn a non reader onto something new.
*oh but they'd have to understanding there is no interrupting while i read lol
And when you dream I hope you can't sleep and you SCREAM about it
I hope your conscience EATS AT YOU and you can't BREATHE without me"
I'm lucky, my partner is an avid reader, but I don't think it would be a big deal if I met someone and they didn't read, there are a plenty of other things we could talk about, music, movies, etc...
I don't think I could be friends with someone who didn't read, much less have a serious relationship with.
Dating such a person would result in limited conversation, attention, and creativity. I prefer to date sociopathic mad-women. Something with a little spark in the gas furnace.
Danger and intrigue coupled with intellect and creativity are sexier than any run of the mill runway model, supermodel, or move-star.
